Adjustable sights for bowhunting deer and archery competitions can more easily help put your arrows on the spot.
Bowhunting sights are one piece of equipment that deer hunters, and even 3D competition shooters, tinker with, obsess over, replace, discuss with friends and ultimately have confidence in once they settle on a sight. Whether it’s a one-pin model, something with fiber optics, an adjustable sight or whatever works best, finding the right one and gaining confidence to your ethical shooting range is paramount.
Adjustable sights are becoming more popular thanks to the ease with which you can set and use them. Once you’re dialed in with your best arrows, broadheads and gear, all you have to do is practice and then turn the dial to change yardages. They’re great tools for bowhunting.
Here’s some news from Rocky Mountain about its new sight.
Reintroduced at the 2017 Archery Trade Association show, the Rocky Mountain brand has roared back to life with the introduction of innovative new broadheads and a new lineup of archery sights. Leading the sight lineup is the new Rocky Mountain Driver sight that can be adjusted for elevation quickly, easily, and very reliably.
Available in either a 1-pin or a 3-pin configuration, the Rocky Mountain Driver features hard-coat-anodized all-aluminum construction with a dovetail mount design. The dovetail mount provides up to 3.3125 inches of sight-radius travel with six locking positions and allows for easy removal of the sight for transport and storage. The Driver’s radial-arc elevation adjustment ensures fast and repeatable tuning to user-determined distances, while keeping the bezel square in relation to the eye. Elevation adjustments are made via a large wheel on the side of the sight, and an adjustable reset block allows a quick return to the minimum-distance zero stop.
The Driver’s windage and pin elevation markers are laser etched, and the windage is tool-free micro-adjustable. The 2nd and 3rd axes are also adjustable. The .019-inch fiber-optic pins are fully captured, and the pins are removable on the 3-pin version. The bezel incorporates a bubble level, and a light adapter is built-in.
Available at retailers nationwide and conveniently online at www.huntrockymountain.com, the new Driver 1-Pin and Driver 3-Pin rapid-adjustment sights have a suggested retail of $129.99 and $149.99, respectively.
Headquartered in Superior, Wis., Rocky Mountain is a wholly owned subsidiary of FeraDyne Outdoors. Renowned for its fixed-blade technology since 1979, the Rocky Mountain brand was relaunched in 2017 and has expanded its offerings to other archery accessories including a line of archery sights.
